It's time to say goodbye

Last weekend I was getting my hair done by my friend Ashley, and she pointed out Britney Spears's son with a pacifier in his mouth. He looked giant to still have it, so I just looked up both boys' ages (since they're so close in age...I had no idea which one he was), and her sons are four and three. (Did you know they're two days away from having the same birthday? And they're the same age for those two days.) I guess she didn't want people saying she was a bad mom to wean her kid off of it by using hot sauce.






Now I just saw a picture with Gwen Stefani's older son with a pacifier in his mouth. Seriously? He will be four in May.



Now Beck is gonna be extra hard to wean just because I posted this. Maybe I'll use hot sauce like Brit.

Kelly Rasberry had the binke fairie come and leave a gift in exchange for the paci. No hot sauce crazy mom here.

My sister's pediatrician said her kids could keep their paci's until they were 3. We took Ben's away before he turned 2. There would have been much hell to pay had we waited any longer than that.

And are their teeth ok? I think that's most of the reasoning behind it.

(Not Ben's, your sister's kids'.)

I've always heard that binkies and sucking your thumb ruin your teeth, but I sucked my thumb for WAY longer than I should have and I've never had braces and have only had one cavity in my life.

Ah, the joys of buck teeth! Not everyone gets it, but is it really worth the risk? And, from a human development point of view, she is not teaching her children any self-soothing skills...what's gonna happen when they're twelve and thirteen and something goes wrong? "Mom, where's my binkie? I had a bad day at the middle school today!" Of course, it could be worse...

Gwen too? My goodness what is this world coming to?

Ian's paci was taken away during the day around 18 months--could only have it at night. just before 2 yrs it was taken for good. It was a sad day, but I don't regret how beneficial it was up until then. No teeth problems yet...except for the ever present Lorscheider gap in the gene pool.
